does having a non-violent misdemeanor affect chances at becoming an rn?
it depends...your state statutes may spell out specific prohibited conduct in the health profession section. for example, it could say that x state mandates disclosure of moral turpitude offenses (lying,cheating, stealing). other states may authorize disclosure of any charges and/or convictions.
you can look at your state code in the health profession section and then check with your state bon. i was always taught that when in doubt, one should always disclose and that disclosure may be given more importance that the offense itself as it goes to veracity of one's character.
as to the question regarding passing a check without having insufficient funds...the reason that it should be disclosed on job interviews and the reason that it may affect hiring is because it involves veracity and fiduciary duty (esp. if the job involves handling money).
